Preventative Care



Just as important as treating your pet, is preventing your pet from contracting illness. 


Stony Brook and the surrounding areas are heavily wooded- ripe environments for ticks and fleas to thrive. Both fleas and ticks can carry illnesses that not only affect your pet, but can also affect you and other people that may have had contact with your pet.

  • Skin problems , such as flea allergy dermatitis, that can lead to severe itching and hairloss
  • Tapeworms, from your pet ingesting fleas
  • Anemia , from severe flea infestations
  • Lyme Disease, from Ticks
  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, from ticks
  • Erlichiosis, from ticks

The above illnesses can be difficult and expensive to treat. Thankfully, flea and tick products are a fraction of the cost, and many prevent and treat intestinal parasites as well as external parasites. Pets can get ticks or fleas any time of year - even winter! Ticks in particular are very hardy and can sometimes be so small that they are difficult to spot once attached.


Heartworm is a disease that is carried by mosquitoes. Like fleas and ticks, mosquitoes can be active during winter, particularly on mild days. The worms are called “heartworms” because the adults live in the heart, lungs, and associated blood vessels of an infected animal. Treatment for heartworm is intensive, and often expensive. Luckily preventatives are not. Like flea/tick preventatives, many heartworm preventatives treat and prevent internal parasites as well.

For heartworm, it is important that your dog is tested on a yearly basis to make sure that the preventatives are working and that your dog has not contracted the disease.

  • "I have my puppy for only 4 days and the doctor provided all the answers to my million questions. She was patient and kind and very loving to my pup. She diagnosed ear mites and cleaned his ears throughly. She explained everything throughly and even comforted me when I got upset about him being a little sick. I would highly recommend and will be taking Finn her from here on out. Thank you thank you thank you!!"

  • ""My husband and I absolutely love Three Village Veterinary Hospital! Our puppies adore Dr. Sophia, and she takes the best care of them whenever we bring them in. When our newest puppy broke her leg and had to have surgery, Dr. Sophia called us right away to check in and see how she was doing, which meant the world to us! All of the vet techs and front desk staff are also amazing! I couldn't imagine bringing our babies anywhere else.""

  • "'They have taken great care of my puppy...even when he does scary things like eating light bulbs ( metal and all). As a first time dog owner I have lots of questions and each of the vets have taken their time to answer all of my questions and concerns without ever making me feel stupid for asking. The support staff is also very knowledgeable, helpful and truly gets excited to see each of the animals that comes through the door.'"

  • ""I could not be happier with my visit to Three Village Veterinary Hospital! I just recently moved to New York and have been extremely nervous in choosing a new veterinarian for my dog (he’s super stubborn and can be a real handful). I called Three Village Veterinary Hospital and right off the bat Dr. Sophia Was fantastic! She really took the time to dive into Huxley’s history with me, including his anxiousness about vet visits. Hearing Dr. Sophia ask all the right questions reassured me that Huxley was in good hands.

    Huxley came out of his appointment with a bill of clean health and a ton of new friends in the office staff, I couldn’t believe how happy he was! I am so glad that I was recommended to Three Village Veterinary Hospital and feel incredibly relieved to have found a fantastic new team that I can trust Huxley with. I HIGHLY recommend!""

  • ""I would never go to another place but this one, even if I had to travel. best professional understanding point on doctors there. they opened their doors and stayed open just for me after hours. They had so much empathy & helped me make the right decision in a short time. I recieved a hand written card from them a couple of days after my visit, which made me cry. I trust them and respect all of them 100% my entire will be taken our pets theres. I cant thank them enough""
  • "We've been with TVVH for over 25 years. Could not imagine going elsewhere. In addition to their professional expertise is the consistent human element; their very real kindness and caring. Office staff, technicians and doctors all are exceptional."

  • "The staff and doctors are amazing. The older my Shih Tzu gets the more difficult and snappy he has become. Your doctors and staff are kind, gentle, and professional. You don't make me feel like I have a bad dog or I raised him wrong. I feel you care not just for me dog but for me (who can be a bit neurotic about my dog). Your tech staff and doctors...even the front desk staff are the best!!"

  • "I not only use Three Village Veterinary for my personal animals, but frequently recommend them to my grooming customers as well. I trust them explicitly and value their professionalism, but above all their compassion... all the doctors there are great & the fact that they put up with my MANY emergencies (& my neurosis) makes them my fav. Love you guys <3"
